Dave is really good at remembering dates. He brought home a gift yesterday in celebration of April 10th 1999- the day we got engaged (and in typical Dave/Sara fashion a few days early).
He bought me a new Kodak EasyShare M893 IS. I LOVE it. I have used an EasyShare for 3 years and then dropped it a few too many times. Thanks, Darlin' :)
Anyway, it got me to thinking about the day we got engaged. We went out ring shopping together. I picked the ring and then he was going to come back and pick it up. But I convinced him to just buy it on the spot :) See- he knew what he was getting into.
Then he snuck the ring into his pocket and later showed me the empty shopping bag- I thought it had been stolen and probably screamed. (such sweet memories).
That night he picked me up and we went to our favorite- the Outback (with an ocean view- we were living on Guam). Then we went to the beach- Dave backed his pick-up down to the water and we sat back there on the tail gate. The stars were gorgeous- then the power went out making the stars even brighter. I was a little worried at this point. I did not see the ring or ring box. But he had wrapped it in a Kleenex and put it in his pocket- very tricky :)
He asked me to be his wife and of course I said yes. That was the best decision ever made.
Thanks for almost 10 years, Sweetheart!!!! And happy engagement day....tomorrow.
